Totesport Casino Poker
Totesport Casino is the new casino on the block from the reputable Tote group who are well-known for their sports betting. It's the most clean and modern and slick casino I've played in and looks very nice.
So what's the point? Well, the casinos offer versions of poker as well and they can make a refreshing change. Play against the dealer with Pai Gow, Let It Ride, Red Dog or 3 Card Poker if you'd like to try a casino experience with some poker flavour.
Oh and Totesport Casino have a slots game where the jackpot is approaching a Mi££ion - added attraction.

Cheaper than Chips | Littlewoods Poker 40 Pence Tourney
This time a 40 pence buy-in with a minimum prize pot of £200. Not bad. It's a freebie type game they have at Littlewoods quite often.
Got down to the last 15 before going out. Was all in with an Ace against an Ace but the river card was a three giving the other guy 2 pair. Played better though and must play more of these cheap as chips Littlewoods Poker games.
Well you've nothing to lose have you and it's good practice?
Littlewoods Poker | £2 Tournament
Sunday afternoon, the kids are out and the girlfriend is sick in bed. Peace apart for her occasional request for more water. Good time for a game of poker, I thought, so I enrolled in one of the hourly £2 tournaments at Littlewoods.
127 players started and after half an hour I hadn't played many hands due to not getting any decent starting hands. The few I had played were fairly low pairs which were folded after the flop with higher cards appearing.
Then I was dealt an A/Q and raised the bet by 50 chips to 100. Two other players, who had been playing loose followed and I thought, I'm in with a chance. Before the flop one player well all-in and I followed, the third followed.
All the cards were shown and the flop was dealt K-Q-5, followed by 2 then 4. What happens? One player had the same cards as me and the other A-K so he put us both out. Grrr... Position 91. Bugger.

You would of course be correct. I haven't. And there's a very good reason for it...I haven't played there. I'm not sure why, it must be good due to the fact so many play there but I've just never got round to it.
I will do though. Sometime.
Anyone was to leave a comment about how they found playing there?

Littlewoods Poker | Texas Hold Em Limit
As I've said before, my poker playing tour on the internet isn't going to plan. Lack of time seems to be the key issue here but today I've managed to have a few hands at Littlewoods Poker. Littlewoods has always been a favourite of mine and today I played a quick game, about an hour, of Texas Hold Em $1/$2 Limit. Came to the table with $40 and left with a lowly $24 after reaching a high of $72 at one point. Must practice and concentrate more!
